Summer is wedding seasons. Many couples choose to have their wedding ceremony during the winter months because of the great weather and the beautiful views.

Are You Tired of Feeling Tired?

The young mother is exhausted. She was feeling tired during her pregnancy, but now that she has a six month old little girl at home she is finding it difficult to function. In fact, she is nervous that she will not be able to competently care for her young child if she does not find a way to get a good night’s rest.
Young mothers are not the only people who find themselves feeling tired. A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control indicate that as many as 50 to 70 million adults in the U.S. have chronic sleep and wakefulness disorders. And while as many as 46% of parents of young children indicate that they often feel sleep-deprived, lack of sleep is a growing concern for many other Americans.

The maintenance on the 19-year old home has become expensive and a burden. After having three large windows replaced a year ago, you now find yourself paying for the residing and painting of the entire exterior.

Just when you think that you have finally caught up and have paid for the last major improvement, another emergency arises. Luckily, you have already paid to get your two daughters through college, but the stress and cost of maintaining the large 3,000 square foot three story home is ridiculous. You are ready for something smaller. Something with less maintenance.
